We live in a connected and always “on” world. The number of connected devices is estimated at 10 billion; that’s 1.4 devices for each of the world’s 7 billion people. In the next five years, as more devices become “smart,” that number is expected to skyrocket to 50 billion devices. With each new connection, consumer expectations will grow. People accustomed to instant access to information anytime, anywhere will want dazzling new experiences that leverage the power of connectedness.

Consider how the Internet and mobility – two powerful forms of connectedness – have empowered shoppers. Today’s consumers use their mobile devices to find product reviews, locate the most competitive deals and then click to buy – all in a matter of minutes. If a sales associate treats them badly or the product fails to perform, the Twittersphere knows within seconds.

Our entertainment and education, our jobs and hobbies, our homes and cars, even our glasses and shoes are or will be connected – and our expectations are growing with each new link. Fortunately, the same connection technologies that are raising expectations and forcing business to run ever-faster and smarter operations can be brought inside to help companies meet or exceed these demands.

From multi-channel publishing to pervasive computing, the future is in platforms that connect all devices and all desires, transforming complexity into simplicity and empowering our organizations to deliver stellar customer experiences.

Dassault Systèmes believes so strongly in the power of connecting people, ideas, solutions and data that we have built a truly inclusive Business Platform that transforms the way IT platforms will be perceived. From invisible hurdles to visible values, from tech for the techies to tech for all, we’ve created a new “species” of platform designed to position each of our customers for
success in the Age of Experience.

Why did we do it? Because we believe one platform should unite everyone inside a business to deliver on the only reason that any business exists: to delight and amaze customers with unforgettable experiences that build loyalty and preference.
